We aren’t the only ones who are happy
It wasn’t only us who were delighted by this announcement because wait till you see Amir’s reaction!
Even though Amir couldn’t attend the ceremony, he made sure to send a message thanking the Scottish Baftas and then saying:
“I want to start by thanking my family, my mom, my dad, my brothers: Ehab, Mohamed. I love you all so much.”Amir El-Masry
Amir also thanked the entire cast of Limbo while mentioning the “crazy conditions” they had to work in, but we are happy with the outcome!
